non-FOSS licenses 

over the past years or so i've seen 'no evil', 'no nazi', 'no military' or 'no commercial' use software licenses, whatever- software licenses that include clauses that aren't directly about the source code or authorship itself

as far as i can tell this is just to make the author feel empowered about stuff without actually making a real change in the world

Is GNOME any good?

A plugin I'd love to see for #PeerTube - an invite system.

Basically, the system would generate single-use tokens for registration, and a special route would automatically fill that token in and allow a person to register, then destroy it upon successful registration.

Allowing people to invite their friends is a great way to help a site grow, and maybe even generate a bit of excitement about it.

As for the rest, I liked how they gave the feeling you were walking through a spook alley, and the interviews gave good back story. I think it was worth watching.

So I decided to watch Hell House LLC 2. I liked the middle part but thought the ending was bad.

I'm not sure how to explain w/o spoilers, but the best way to describe it: You know how some movies hide the monster in the shadows, and when they finally show it, it is some fake stupid looking mannequin which says "rawr"

They didn't exactly do that, but it is the way it made me feel.

I just watched a movie called "hell house llc"

Intense horror movie.

Dear #foss developers, you encounter an open source project and feel enticed to check out their community. Discord is mentioned as the only place where the discussions take place.

Your reaction?

A - Great, I already have an account anyway.
B - Ok, I'd be willing to join if the project is interesting enough.
C - Not ok, I will not be part of those discussions.
D - Other (see comment)

Boosts appreciated (research for blog post).

I watched a movie last night called Southbound. I think it is worth a watch if you are into supernatural horror.

Okay I am confused.

I have a program that is taking 16 images from each of the capture APIs to see how long they take and which ones work.

The only ones that work are ANY (which just seems to be GSTREAMER), GSTREAMER, V4L, V4L2 (which is just V4L) and VFW (which also appears to just be V4L).

GSTREAMER produces images that are 2304x1536 and V4L produces 640x480 images.

I am using a C922X which is supposed to be 1920x1080, why does GSTREAMER creates such large images?

I watched Grave Encounters 1 & 2 last weekend. I think they are worth watching if you like supernatural found footage movies. The 2nd one was a little boring for the first bit, probably because I had just seen the 1st movie.

The disinformation dozen are: Joseph Mercola, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Ty and Charlene Bollinger, Sherri Tenpenny, Rizza Islam, Rashid Buttar, Erin Elizabeth, Sayer Ji, Kelly Brogan, Christiane Northrup, Ben Tapper, and Kevin Jenkins

These people are responsible for up to 75% of the world's online conspiracy theories and antivaxx memes and info.

Noob question: in xfce's window manager, how do you beef up the margin of error for the resize hotspot on the edges and corners of windows?

Hitting them on first shot is like trying to thread a needle with chopsticks.
